Since Friends wrapped up fifteen years ago, fans of the sitcom have been more than vocal about wanting Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Phoebe, and Joey to return to the screen one more time.
All cast members but Jen have had active Instagram accounts, that constantly tease us eager followers with hints of a reunion. But since she finally created her own Instagram account last month, people are now more concerned about Jen’s social media activity than a Friends reunion.
Her every move has been heavily analyzed by the entire world, so it’s no wonder that her ex-husband Justin Theroux reaching out to her on the social media app was noticed instantly.

We were first introduced to the Friends gang in 1994.
Ross (David Schwimmer), Rachel (Jennifer Aniston), Chandler (Matthew Perry), Monica, (Courteney Cox), Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow), and Joey (Matt LeBlanc) burst onto our screens in September 1994.
Created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, the comedy follows the friends, who live in the same New York apartment block, as they navigate their lives.
The show propelled each cast member into superstardom, with the show winning several Emmy’s during its ten-season run.
The success of the show can’t be denied…even the theme song, “I’ll Be There for You,” during the iconic title sequence is impossible to not sing along to.
Allegedly, the cast was also each on an eye-watering $1 million salary per episode in the later seasons of the show – a history-breaking figure.
Apart from the occasional reunion on talk-shows, fans have had their fair share of disappointments when it comes to waiting for a Friends reunion.
A fake trailer for a Friends movie trailer even went viral last year, giving superfans false hope that the sitcom was hitting the box office.
Just last year, Matt Leblanc said a Friends reunion would never go ahead.
The actor left fans heartbroken as he rejected calls for the show to return, saying the sitcom simply “wouldn’t be the same” in an interview with the Mail Online.
He added: “People want to know what happened to them. But it was about a finite period in a person’s life after college, before you settle down and start a family.”
The show’s creator Marta Kauffman, says she constantly gets “nagged” by fans to bring the sitcom back.
“Watch the old ones – there is no way we could win that. And there’s no way it would be satisfying and it’ll never happen. We’ll never do it,” she said.
Yes, you read that correctly…
When asked the usual question about a potential reunion with her fellow co-stars, Aniston surprised fans, saying: “Why not? You know what, because, listen, I told you this.
“I would do it… The girls would do it. And the boys would do it, I’m sure. Listen. Anything could happen.”
Aniston joked that she could do a revival by herself if nobody else was up for it.
And that’s an Instagram account.
Lisa Kudrow, Courtney Cox, David Schwimmer, and Matt Le Blanc post regularly on their Instagram accounts – it’s only been Jennifer and Matthew Perry who have kept their distance from the social media platform.
But the news everyone was waiting for was finally announced…
Jennifer finally got an Instagram account last month!
She created her account under the name @jenniferaniston on the 15th of October, and her first post is everything we could have dreamed of.
She shared a selfie of herself and the rest of the Friends gang, clearing enjoying an evening together.
“And now we’re Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM,” she captioned the post.
Our prayers were finally answered!
Jen even playfully commented on Matt Le Blanc’s Instagram post of the gang recently: ‘You don’t have to # me anymore.”
She boasts a staggering 18.6 million followers, with her setting a world record of gaining a million followers in just 6 hours.
Jen received that many followers at once…
She caused one huge glitch on Instagram.
And out of her 18.6 million followers, a lot of them are fellow A-listers.
It appears that the pair are still on relatively good terms since they announced the ending of their marriage in February 2018.
He told ET’s Rachel Smith that he was actually one of the first, saying, “She actually texted me. She said, ‘You haven’t followed me,’ and I said, ‘Of course I followed you!’ and she’s like, ‘No you haven’t!'”
“I realized I was one of the people caught in the glitch… She literally broke Instagram.”
Justin has been using his Instagram to promote the Lady and the Tramp…
He is the voice-over of The Tramp, and Justin has been using his adorable adopted pitbull Kuma to promote the movie further.
It was yet another adorable snap of Kuma, and the post described how Justin had visited Ventura County Animal Services to help other animals in need.
Justin tagged Selena Gomez’s account, saying, “Sorry Selena, you know the drill,” and he also tagged ex-wife saying, “Yep, now that you’re on here, you’re gonna get a lot of this too!”
And guess what…
Jennifer liked the post!
But it is nice to see that the exes are on good terms and they have remained friends… especially for poor Kuma’s sake!
